For many years I’ve been told how we are to memorize Scripture. I’ve attempted to do so, but yesterday something happened to really motivate me to memorize more.
I was upset about something and was praying that the Lord would comfort me and quiet my spirit. While I was still praying, verses started to cross my mind. I didn’t remember the reference, so I had to look it up.
A Song of degrees.
1 I will lift up mine eyes unto the hills, from whence cometh my help.
2 My help cometh from the LORD, which made heaven and earth.
3 He will not suffer thy foot to be moved: he that keepeth thee will not slumber.
4 Behold, he that keepeth Israel shall neither slumber nor sleep.
5 The LORD is they keeper: the LORD is thy shade upon thy right hand.
6 The sun shall not smite thee by day, nor the moon by night.
7 The LORD shall preserve thee from all evil: he shall preserve thy soul.
8 The LORD shall preserve thy going out and thy coming in from this time forth, and even for evermore.
What a blessing it was to be reminded of these verses. I just love how the Lord used these verses to remind me that He will take care of me. There was one thing that surprised me though – I don’t remember actually memorizing that passage. Not that I didn’t – I just don’t remember.
It makes me want to memorize more.
